From Andy Rickard /Cartlett Lady

hi cliff /hannah
following the saga of the everchanging weather forecast last week
we ventured out 20 miles fishing yesterday  with waterproofs and wellies
at around 12 miles sw of milford  there was a group of 100 to 200 common dolphins 
they were swimming slowly tightly grouped with lots of small ones we watched from a distance as it was a maternal group 
other sightings 3 or 4 small groups of common dolphins 
no whales seen,the sea state  4 ish wind w 14mph  not the best day for whale watching
as the conditions were quite bumpy and we got pretty wet!
